's had since we've been in technical recovery, the economy grew 20%. obama has grown 7%. a third the strength of reagan's. job creation much higher under reagan. what did reagan do? all the things that romney and ryan are talking about. lower marginal tax rates. obama wants to raise them. less spending. obama added $5 trillion of debt. we're supposed to have 6% unemployment, according to obama, if he spent $5 trillion. that's not what we got. we know that obama's plan put us in the worst position, fewer people working. fewer people in the workforce. people have given up on job opportunities. very weak economic growth. >> you know, i think a lot of voters, too, are sort of frustrated by the lack of anybody in congress working to the. and john earlier you were talking about the severe partisanship. and some people point to you in this taxpayer protection pledge, which i have on me. i don't know if people can see it clearly. you have everyone sign for the house of reps, i pledge i will oppose any and all efforts to increase the marginal income tax to oppose any net reduction or elim
by the fight over the economy. it's what ultimately can tip tha scales. we have seen now an argument from the president that is about trust. and this somehow he lays it out against governor romney. >> there's no more serious issue in a presidential campaign than trust. trust matters.s. you know, you want to know that the person who is applying to be your president and commander-in-chief is trustworthy. that he means what he says. that he's not just making stuff up. depending on whether it's convenient or not. >> how is he using that argumena to advance the cause of hey, you can't trust what you're going 0 get, that's going to ultimately lead to economic recovery under the republicans? >> i think that the president, as the race gets narrower, we focus on smaller places and smaller numbers of voters. we see that become a resonant argument. we're talking about the economy in the midwest, we're talking about the economy in ohio. on the integrity issue, the trust issue, mitt romney this th week went to defiance, ohio, an told a group of 11,000 people, jeep is about to move all of their product

agent. they were ecstatic about the economy coming back. >> happy days are here again. >> consumer confidence suspect. anticipating better unemployment number tomorrow. if that happens, and i believe it will, then the obama team dominates the news cycle for friday, saturday, and sunday. and the romney team doesn't really have any way to reply. they can't poo poo it because that would seem chir issue will. >> we knew this though, right? o. >> we will see what the numbers are. i really don't think it's going to make any difference in the final four days of this election. >> bill: you don't believe that's what the press is going to do. >> the press as you and i have talked about, the press has been, i think, at its lowest point in the credibility and reliability in this presidential election cycle. i think after this election is over, there is going to be hell to pay for the american people for a whole bunch of reasons. >> bill: there is going to be polling -- >> -- i don't think it matters. there are a whole bunch of people in this country after this election is over, they didn't thi
any attempt to stimulate the economy or pass legislation to help create jobs in this country. they openly brag about that, you know, their plan is to make president obama a one-term president. they kill compromise deals, brokered between democrats and republicans. this is the party mitt romney will lead if he's president. he won't reach across the aisle. he'll turn his back on the folks on the other side of the aisle. and it will be more of the same. mitt romney has no plan for taxes. he can't be direct on that. he has no plan when it comes to repealing obama care and what he's going to replace it with. and what about immigration? which in these last few weeks hasn't gotten a whole lot of attention. he has no plan for america. and now he's going to be the guy who's going to reach across the aisle? get your cell phones out. i want to know what you think. tonight's question. who do you trust to work with the other side? text "a" for president obama, text "b" to mitt romney to 622639. always to our blog at ed.msnbc.com. we'll bring you the results later on in the show. joining m

in the unemployment rate is a sad reminder that the economy is at a virtual standstill. >> i don't think so. the last month, the unemployment rate came down three ticks. and the romney campaign complained that we hadn't created more jobs. this month, the number of jobs created was 30%, 40% higher than expected and was fairly strong. and then they criticize that the unemployment rate ticked up one tenth. it's the last number before the election, so i think both sides are going to see, try to go through and interpret what it means. i think overall, most economists view it as a fairly solid report. and until we get the growth rate of the economy up faster than 2%, 2.5%, this is probably about what we should expect from a solid report. >> how does one explain the kind of inconsistency? 7.9%. that's up, with unemployment. then you talk about adding 171,000 jobs in october. >> yeah, a great question. a lot of people misunderstood how the jobs work. there's two surveys. the jobs come from a survey of businesses. the unemployt rate comes from a survey of people. each month, there's a lot of variability in bo
